Cassius share Action music video

Latex, erupting volcanoes, gorillas, oh my!

Posted on

Cassius returned with their first new single in more than five years, “Action” featuring Cat Power and the Beastie Boys’ Mike D., last week and on Thursday, they released its wacky, tropical-themed music video.

Directed by TOILET PAPER, the clip features a trippy jungle, golden gorilla costumes, flaming bananas, enormous turkey legs, and a fantastical, absurdist BBQ.

When releasing the song, Mike D. told Pitchfork that “Action” aims to capture “that era of a Compass Point record that gets played in the Loft in New York City, but today.”

Cassius haven’t released a full-length album since 2006’s 15 Again, but Philippe Zdar, one half of the French electronic duo, worked with Mike D. and Cat Power’s Chan Marshall in the group’s down time.
